    The light from this is bright but not harsh, and you won't have to worry about replacing the battery as it's rechargeable (you'll get a USB charging cable included). It'll automatically turn on when it senses motion from up to 10ft away, and then will turn off in 15 seconds once motion is no longer detected. You won't need any tools to install this either, as it comes with a magnetic strip and adhesive tape that will securely fix this to wherever you need it.
